FiZmO

Postby Plink Floyd » Tue Jan 15, 2013 11:45 am

I want one. But I can't quite afford it right now.

I could afford the $200 Ensoniq VFXSD currently at the Bakersfield GC, but... not sure if want.

My impression is that folks that have FIZMOs have grown to love them. Carbon had a high opinion of the VFX, too.

$703. I'm surprised it went that cheaply. But I'll bet the winner's sneakret max bid was considerably more than that.

Yeah, there are other similar synths out there that can be had for less (GC used has a Wavestation SR for $150). But nothing else looks like a FiZmO.

And anyway, I'm not buying anything else until I upgrade my puter. It won't be cheap, because I want to edit HD vid so I need i7 & mobo, big RAM, big CUDA, SSD plus three SATA HDDs.

Believe me, I'd way rather buy a cool synth or two. I just can't get excited about buying PC guts. It's like trying to get psyched about replacing a garage door opener or getting a new sump pump...

:sheesh:

It's baaack... Re-listed due to non-payment.

Go on, somebody get it. Then sell it to me after I've finished paying for my new DAW.

Ask not what Fizmo can do for you.

Ask what you can do for Fizmo!

Nah, I don't think I'd have any use for it. Not my kinda thang.

If Metro comes around in his van and asks you if you want candy, you know what to do.

Did I mention that I have a friend who is selling one of these right now?

Any interest and I'll get you in touch.

Thanx but I'd better not. Not at this time. Wouldn't be prudent.

But do ya know where I can get a 15" bass rotor & pulley for my still unfinished Leslie project? Cheap?

Is that comparable to my Proteus 2500? The Prot has the same z-plane filters I think...

If you needs to do to it cheep, you'll have to try your luck sniping one on eBay, other wise put aside $125 or so and get the next one you find. The thing about something like that is: the sound and the experience are worth whatever it takes to get it period. You might justify it however by getting a super deal on something else and then telling yourself you're saving more monies!

I remember playing the Fizmo about, what, 15 years ago or so? (eesh) when it was still in stores. (I think it was actually in that brief flame of a music store called Mars Music.)

I was unimpressed. I am trying to get why there all of a sudden there is a Cult of Fizmo now. :confuse:

I actually have nothing nice to say about them. I guess if I tried I might say at least it had proper adult sized keys, but that doesn't help it sounding so bad. I suppose it might make a good controller for a micro korg. :idk:

It's because, well, I have this synth, but I'm sure you never heard of it... :lol:
